PLW Waterworks, owned by Ferrovial Agroman subsidiaries Webber and Cadagua, has been selected to participate in the construction of two water treatment plants in Texas with a combined value of $312 million, equivalent to €274 million.
Firstly, the company will execute two contracts as part of the project to expand Houston’s Northeast Water Purification Plant. PLW Waterworks will install more than 37,000 linear meters of underground pipelines and build a new treated water pumping station, with a capacity of 1.21 million cubic meters per day.
Those contracts, together worth $192 million (€169 million), are expected to be completed in 2024. The expansion of Houston’s Northeast Water Purification Plant is the largest Design and Construction project under way in this industry in the United States.
When completed, the plant will serve over 2 million people.
Secondly, PLW Waterworks is to build a surface water treatment plant in the city of Pearland, south of Houston, for 120 million dollars, equivalent to 105 million euro. The work includes executing pre-sedimentation and processing facilities, pumping stations and pipelines. The plant, which will serve a population of 75,000, is expected to be ready in 2023.
